With flashy covers no less! :D

In a way, it's too bad, as Pirate Radio itself is an interesting subject, worthy of a more accurate film than this.

And Deyz mentioned 'Wooden Heart... Elvis singing in German. It's strange, but it sure isn't rock n' roll. Didn't the BBC allow like, 1 hour of real rock programming a week back then? I believe I heard that it was like that, so if you wanted more than an hour, piracy was the way to go... :D

The BBC weren't entirely oblivious to the fact that the Beatles etc were drawing crowds and record companies were signing them up. For two hours on a Saturday morning there was a programme called 'Saturday Club' (I know, blinding) where some of the music was by these young upstarts. It was presented by someone who sounded like he was wearing a tie, and older than my dad.

Oh yes, there are Beatles' 'Saturday Club' sessions on their 'Live At The BBC' album. Complete with host. Not only a tie, he also sounds like he's wearing a lab coat (a La George Martin.)
